detroit ez locker

I got a detroit ez locker from a sami in the rear of my sidekick using the samuri side gears. Now im getting problems.... When I drive it around it will be fine most of the time and then I will push the clutch in and then let it out it will makes a pop nosie and the drivers side tires doesn't spin, it will keep makeing that nosie and usually it will lock in but that is after alot of pops. Sounds like a spring poping out. Sometimes it will just pop and never lock in and sometimes it will lock in a work fine. What could be the problem? I havn't changed the gear oil since I put in it 4 months ago, could it be that? Or maybe the locker isn't shimmed right

thanks

Was it a used ezlocker?

Could the springs be worn?


I think the ezlocker is based on the detroit style and if those springs are shot that might be the problem

ok, i just went out the pulled the diff oil, i don't think im going to need springs, i think some new diff oil should fix it, it didn't even look like diff oil, looked like old engine oil with dirt, molasis and water mixed together. I'm hoping its the problem.

Hopefully you havent rusted out the inside with that contaminated oil !

Check your diffs more often !

Its probably more likley the bad oil then the springs ! Clean the diff out real well with some brakeclean ,, then start out with new oil ad see how if that helps it !

I would check to see if the dog teeth are still intact . The could be very worn on one side so you might want to flip it so you drive side is on the other side of the teeth

with the way the EZ locker and Lock Rites work and the shape of the teeth they wear very badly and the symptoms you are describing are the same as when those things wear out, this is why I will never suggest an EZ or Lock Rite for the rear of any vehicle they are not bad in the frt just not in the rear, the constant duty kills em
